Tell us a little about yourself. What are your names, where do you live, how do you earn your spending money, etc...

Ashley and Willem. We live near the Northeast side of White Rock Lake in Dallas. We are both software developers/programmers, who have found ourselves spending the better part of the last year on our new house, and this summer building a back yard recording studio, Chicken coops, making bread and jam, traveling internationally (when we can) and mostly spending a great deal of time keeping ourselves entertained with various (mostly random) interests.

What makes you nerdy?

I think the whole nerd/geek thing is more about an innate curiosity. Whether you want to discuss random eastern philosophy, scientific discoveries, literature, or how to build a log cabin, in the end it doesn't really matter. Knowledge is always interesting, and there is something fascinating about most everything... except maybe toast.

What do you hope to get out of this group?

It amazes me that I have managed to live in Dallas for a little over 7 years now and honestly, I feel like I don't know anyone! It is hard enough finding like minded people out there, but throw in a full time job, urban sprawl, and a tendency to stay home and watch Dr. Who, and voila! I am hoping to meet others out there who will have similar interests, or at least, INTERESTING interests! heh! I have very little inclination to go out to the bars and discuss the best salons in Dallas, or talk about boring bourgeoisie nonsense. So I'm guessing this might be a far easier route :P

What is your availability to meet up? (AM/PM, Weekdays/Weekends)

Any time really, though usually after 5 on week days is best!


I'm a programmer, a musician, a total geek in too many areas. I own 5 baby chickens, I bake, I love all things artsy, and have a secret love of dressing up, and spending too much money on costumes. I have traveled the world, and <3 literature!
